.s. recognition of statehood. that is something obama has not received enough credit for. within a year, we have both a jewish congresspersons, one republican and one democrat saying opposite things. your party would do better in the white house for israel. >> i certainly believe so. it is a very critical period. small things can mean an awful lot when the president has not been to israel, snubs the prime minister, has made outrageous claims. these have consequences. i think some of the arab states right now -- these are big blunders. >> you mean the book, thldest of the arab states? >> that daylight between israel and the united states. this is an administration of a great deal of rhetoric. let's look to the actions. >> that is an interesting point, congressman. there are people that say, it doesn't matter if there are nice photo ops. but does it matter what president obama is eating in jerusalem? >> it does matter. >> would you measure military support with the diplomatic aid? he may not love is real. >> i am not asking obama if he loves it, if he believes it is in the best interests of the un
is that president obama and congressman ryan have almost the exact same proposal for the next ten years, save $1 trillion from medicare, not by cutting benefits or raising costs to elderly, but reducing payments to hospitals and other kind of providers. interestingly those two are in the same place on the next two years. romney for whatever set of reasons says he doesn't want to do anything in the next ten years, which means that $1 trillion that his vice presidential running mate would save he does not want to save. he's in a different place on the next ten years. so let's go to the period after that. what's the long-term plan that each of these guys has for cost containment. again, very interestingly, president obama congressman ryan want to achieve exactly the same level of medicare spending over the definite future. they want to increase by gdp plus 1.5%. they would get there different ways. president obama would get there by efficiencies, new methods. ryan would get there by having private competition. in terms of the actual dollars, it's the same. romney, again, we can ask why, does not wa
. by the time the reigns got turned back tobarack obama and me, they had double the national deat in eight years. the fourth, fifth, or six days we were in office, we were sitting in the oval office at sunset, and we were informed, mr. president, looking at this year's budget you are going to have a trillion dollars deficit. he said, "i haven't done anything yet." [laughter] he said, no, mr. president, the budget they passed in october of last year guarantees that no matter what you do, you will have a trillion dollar deficit this year in the budget. ladies and gentlemen, these guys talk about the national debt. what date did generated the slowest growth in private-sector jobs since world war ii. it gave us this great recession. what they have not told us is that they have been unwilling to do anything about it. here's the deal, folks. we laid out a $4 trillion debt reduction plan over the next 10 years. we have already passed $1 trillion of it. ladies and gentlemen, these guys vote against everything. no, no, no. i really mean it. not only do they say they don't like our plan, so you say, what'
is too expensive. obama care doesn't make it less expensive. >> romney and paul ryan propose to cap malpractice insurance, cut medicaid by $810 billion over the next ten years, give states more control over their medicaid funds, overhaul medicare. the overhaul, people now younger than 55. when they reach retirement, would have the option of getting a voucher to purchase private insurance or they could stick with traditional medicare. >> this financial support system is designed to guarantee that seniors can always afford medicare coverage no exceptions. >> while the repeal of obama care would get rid of the prescription drug benefit to seniors, romney doesn't want to take out all of the law's provisions. >> we have to make sure that people who have preexisting conditions are able to get insured and that folk that is get sick do not get dropped. >> the president of the american action forum doesn't support the current law. >> both sides agree the amount we spend on medicare has to be capped. they just disagree on how to get there. romney and ryan say what we're going to do is the giv
though is kind of instructive. right now president obama seems safely ahead in all of the polling. pennsylvania is actually the kind of state that mitt romney's promise a year ago he was going to be able to put into play the same way john mccain's promise was supposedly that. the reason why pennsylvania has become so solid democratic they've won in each of the past five elections is largely because theuburbs outsi philadelphia, white collar, affluent, right of center economically, left of center social issues have moved decisively towards the democrats. originally mitt romney was seen as a candidate who could appeal to those voters. but he's not making ma inroads there. as a result pennsylvania seems out of reach in an reastic scenario. >> he was doing so fund raising there. that may be the major reason while he's there although the aides ar being a bit coy pretending they think it's realistic to get the democrats that a sthere. wouldn't be first time. >> we'll see if they put any television montimeey or i that. >> let's see if they t up ere with some money. you've been taking a
sentiment was such that at least earlier in the year that the the multiple might contract if obama won. so we weren't making a political call. i'll let you guys -- >> now it's gk oing up because it's anticipating an obama win this. >> i've been surprised about that, that maybe the multiple isn't impacted by the presidential election. i guess we have the debate next week. but i think it's been more about fed policy. >> there are those that say that the market hates uncertainty. and that we know what we got the past four years and even though everyone -- maybe certain players don't like the way it has been treated, but the market's done pretty well. so at least it knows what it's getting if obama is reelected. >> nobody seems to be worried about anything in the near term. but the earnings -- fundamentals matter and i believe they will again. i think the earnings -- >> you're arguing you'll be right eventually. >> i hope so. >> is that a good question? >> what keeps me up at night is if the earnings reflect being up and i miss it. that's what i want to get right. >> you look at the late '90s,
president obama has been a stronger ally of israel's than any other president he served with in eight years. that in the words of the vice president. so that is also a big out on the campaign trail today, both sides trying to show who would be the bigger ally of israel at this point. >> all right, fascinating thanks so much, jim acosta. appreciate that. >>> and don't forget, you want to catch that first presidential debate, denver, colorado, romney versus obama. that's next wednesday, 8:00 p.m. eastern time he on c. >>> theh dayof the united natis general assembly and a side group is taking on auably the bloodiest and most brutal problem in the world today. syria. the conf there has reportedlyed more than 30,000 people since march of last yea more than twthirdsre civilians. this is youtube video out of aleppo, the city of aleppo. today, the german foreign minister made a plea before the assembly. >> translator: such suffering is speechless. bulsoimpells us to act. to this very day the security council hasailed to live up to its responsibility for peop in ria. >> germany is part of a special
roiling for over two years. the presidential race. for a while, is deemed competitive. president obama seems to have pulled ahead by about five points in the latest polls. some of that has helped to change the trajectory of the race. earlier this month, governor tommy thompson, republican, seem to have the momentum. at this point, his democratic rival tammy baldwin seems to be within the margin of error or a little ahead. >> why is that? >> my best guess is that the baldwin surge corresponds with president obama getting some distance from governor romney. in august, it seemed competitive, and still is. governor thompson was perceived as the best nominee. he had a competitive primary. paul ryan was nominated for the vp. it seems like suddenly wisconsin was back in the republican column. >> is tonight their first and only debate? >> i do not know that off the top of my head but it is going to be an interesting evening because governor thompson is a statewide branch. he is known as tommy. he is going to be seeking to label all and as a liberal. she is too liberal for nancy pelosi. she is
tuesday, president obama took a tougher than usual election-season line against iran. the cold reality is, that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. essentially saying actions speak louder than words. your reaction? >> i think that actions do speak louder than words. and if you look at the record of the president, he has led the international community in posing the most crippling sanctions ever imposed on any country. he has said that all options are on the table. i can tell you from my time in the pentagon that option is very real. it is important that we give diplomacy time to work. we still do have time. the president has been clear and consistently clear in his determination to absolutely prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. there's no doubt about that whatsoever. >> but the leader of israel benjamin netanyahu doesn't say we've been very clear. he keeps calling us to lay out a deliberate red line here. there are people here in this world, key allies, that do
